PROFILE OF A PARATROOPER

To be able to parachute,
you must have some guts for the selection course
and you need agility, co-ordination and confidence to jump.
But to be an airborne soldier,
you must be smart, disciplined, fit,
physically and mentally tough,
determined, have team spirit,
be aggressive, have initiative and also have a sense of humour.
